The FIFA Fan Festival in Doha has welcomed over one million fans since it opened its door on Saturday, 19 November – one day before the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ kicked off. To celebrate one million visitors at the venue, FIFA has given away two tickets to the FIFA World Cup Final at Lusail Stadium on Sunday, 18 December.
Football fan Haytham Mokhtar is the one millionth visitor to the FIFA Fan Festival and the lucky recipient of match tickets to the Final, as well as an official match ball signed by legends of the game, “I still cannot believe that I am so lucky to be the one millionth guest at the FIFA Fan Festival.
Sara and I were coming here to have a good time and shortly after I was standing on the main stage in front of thousands of people with a football signed by Cafu and Ronald de Boer, and with tickets to the Final. It is just unbelievable!” shared a thrilled Haytham.
